This rumor has been picking up steam. We can report that according to a rep for the couple the rumor is just not true. News of the World is reporting that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (seen here at the 2009 premiere of Inglorious Basterds) have agreed legally to split – the agreement is said to include who gets custody of the six children and how to divide their $300 million fortune.
The agreement gives them joint custody of the kids – but all six will actually live full-time with Angelina. Preparations for a split began in early December when the couple visited a top Los Angeles divorce firm. An announcement of their separation is expected to be made soon.
According to their source, “the document was signed in early January. Both Brad and Angelina had signed it. The contract was like a tailor-made version of a pre-nuptial agreement except for an unmarried couple’s split. It seemed clear they want the world to know they’ll both play a part in the upbringing of the children. But Angelina will actually be the one who lives with them full-time.”
Nice try News of the World. Next time I’ll know where to go for my fabricated story of the day.
